Plastic foil for maturing, dry aging, curing or smoking meat, fish or cheese

We are especially proud of our Tublin® 10, which among other uses is excellent for dryaging meat. Because of its innovative food technology, this bag won a Food & Beverage Product Innovation Award at the NRA Show 2011 in Chicago, USA. The bag is not just a protective packaging material, but a more of a process help, which improves safety and yields and reduces waste.

The product is also outstanding when it comes to drying and smoking hams (Tublin® 5), maturing cheese, and salting, smoking and drying of fish. The latter product use has been studied at Universitat Politècnica de València showing great results.
